The GDA team were devastated to learn that our beloved colleague Susan McKinstery died suddenly, but peacefully, on Saturday 5th February. Her loving wife Maria was by her side.

We are shocked and deeply saddened by the news and we know that many GDA members will be too. Susan was a valued and active member of GDA for many years, before joining the team as Policy and Participation Officer for our Future Visions for Social Care Team.

Susan was talented in the field of social care policy analysis, enriched by her personal experience and insights. She had an unshakeable commitment to human rights for disabled people and worked hard as a staff member of GDA and a volunteer of her much loved Flourish House to improve lives of many, many people.

Susan was a joy to work with and had a fabulous sense of humour. She was a talented writer and a wonderful colleague. We will miss her so much.
